The third Seafieldroad album, The Winter of 88, is almost finished and will be in iTunes and other digital retailers from early 2015.
The album will be launched with a rare Seafieldroad live show at the Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh, Sunday 7 December. You can buy tickets here.
If you’re one of the 88 people who pre-ordered the limited edition physical release, your CD and handmade artwork will be available at the album launch - or, if you can’t make it to the gig, it’ll be posted to you the following day, arriving just in time for Christmas.
The Winter of 88 consists of 11 new songs written and performed by Andrew from Swimmer One, including the recent single This Road Won’t Build Itself. It is produced by Hamish from Swimmer One and features choral singing and arrangements by Laura and Andrew from Swimmer One, plus our friends Joanne Richardson and Martin Bainbridge. Listen out for the lovely baritone voice of Drew Wright (aka Wounded Knee), reading the 88 names, and some beautiful live trumpet playing by Andy Moore of NoFit State Circus.
The second single from the album, Don’t Let The WInter Freeze Your Heart, will be available to download from Monday 8 December - Seafieldroad’s first Christmas single.
Track list below:
The last house on Holland Island
A port in the storm
There is no authority that we won’t argue with
Don’t let the winter freeze your heart
The world is just noise
This road won’t build itself
Clean pale hands
Leave the stadium
The winter of 88
Islands of the north Atlantic.

Daniel’s film is part of a much bigger, multimedia project featuring dozens of Scottish musicians and writers, which was put together by Cora Bissett, David Greig and Swimmer One, and produced by The Arches in Glasgow. The live show premiered at the Arches in June 2012, the film premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe two months later, and the album/book was released in November 2012.
We’re hoping to revive the live show soon. Watch this space, or for more regular updates follow the project’s Facebook page
